Courage and Random Acts of Kindness

Courage and Random Acts of Kindness

January flew by and just like that the second month of 2021 is here. Our theme for February is Courage and Random Acts of Kindness, and as the pandemic continues its grip on British Columbia and the rest of the world, those things are more important than ever. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear about your own random acts of kindness; connect with us on Facebook to share.
